A bomb exploded in front of the Spanish embassy in the Libyan capital late on Monday, residents said, the latest in a string of attacks on foreign missions in the North African country.

"We heard a loud explosion," said a Tripoli resident living next to the embassy.

Spain's El Mundo newspaper said nobody had been hurt as Spain, like most Western and Arab countries, had pulled out its diplomats in summer during weeks of heavy fighting between rival armed groups in Tripoli.

Pictures posted on social media showed some damage at the building's wall. There was no immediate claim for the attack or comments from Tripoli officials.
